Well, it all depends on who you ask. Nostradamus preducts the Third and Final antichrist to be someone called "Mabus". Interestingly enough, Mabus
himself (or herself since no gender is listed) seems to play a role primarily as a Martyr. Mabus dies, then
the bad stuff happens.
Century 2, Quatrain 62
Mabus plus tost alors mourra, viendra,
De gens & bestes vn horrible defaite:
Puis tout à coup la vengeance on verra,
Cent, main, faim quand courra la comete.
Mabus then will soon die, there will come
A horrible undoing of people and animals:
At once vengeance one will see vengeance,
One hundred hands, thirst, famine, when the comet will run.
Of the recent significant comet events there is: Halley’s Comet (1985-86), the collision of the comet Shoemaker-Levi (1994), or the comet Hale-Bopp
(1997), which appeared right at the millennium of the Jewish lunar calendar.
Now there have been any number of suggestions as to who Mabus is. Personally I feel the most logical choice, considering the context of the quote, is
(aka "Abu Mazen"). The name could conceivably have come across as "Mabus" to Nostradamus.
As President of the Palestinian National Authority (Fatah--sort of the good guys), he is at direct odds with Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh
(Hamas--sort of the bad guys). Palestine and Israel has been a hotbed of violence and the situation there (in addition to the U.S. support of Israel)
has been the cause of most of the unrest between Western civilization and the Middle East. Hammas has refused (up until today--see
) to recognize Israel as a country. If Israel were warred upon by a united
front of Muslim countries, make no mistake, World War III would result.
Thanks to the whole Soldier incident, we may be looking at the start of WWIII now (
) or at the very least, the wiping of recognition of Israel and Hamas towards each
other. It would only take one incident, such as the assassination of Mahmoud Abbas, to swing full power of Palestine over to the less stable and more
historically violent Hamas. The assassination could be used to spark the already fueled tension between Israel and Palestine.
Thus, Mabus may not truly be an "antichrist" as in an evil leader of Satan's spawn, but rather more in a literal sense of one man's death changing
